What defines a home?
We want to look at the similarities and differences between items from homes all over the world. What happens with products after they have left the store? Objects tell stories of moments in our lives, people we have met and places we have been to.
We have collected personal stories about objects. Some of these objects are reproduced in red plastic with the owners story prined on the surface. At the Milan fair 2005 The objects were spread to different places all over the world and we asked the new owners to send us images and stories from their homes. This is a long time survey where we collect stories and explore what makes people love or hate an object.
I have quite a lot of teddy bears, for example, they are quite personal. It's a bit of a pain in the neck, really, if you have a lot of teddy bears. I've got them under the covers. But then I also have some teddy bears in the attic. And that's not very nice. But before, I kept them in a trash bag, like upside down and so, and now I've fixed them up more nice and tidy like, which feels much better. It's impossible to throw them away. Some things have got a personality like my chihuahua, but he is completely cross-eyed, so I get scared some times when he kind of gives me a strange look.
